FAI - Villa e Collezione Panza, Varese

4.4
#2 of 19 in Museums in Province of Varese
Art Gallery Architectural Building
Set in a massive estate, FAI - Villa e Collezione Panza represents an attractive villa now home to the Saatchi Gallery. The villa went through a number of owners over several centuries before being donated by Giuseppe Panza to the National Trust of Italy. Panza was an avid art collector and the gallery displays his personal collection of American art, including artists like Phil Sims, David Simson, Ruth Ann Fredenthal, Stuart Arends, and Max Cole, among others. Enjoy the contemporary art, as well as the contrasting setting--the villa and the surrounding gardens date back to the 18th century.

  • The Park is very nice, the fountain, the modern one, is spectacular. The Interior has many furnishings but is home to permanent exhibitions the choice of which is questionable. Interesting installations of Bob Wilson, but could use some explanation. In Induno Olona, just a short distance away, one can visit the peace garden, a rose garden where there are some statues of EXPO 2015.

  • Villa with painting and sculpture in the greatest expressions, both in collection and in view. Enchanted Park with majestic trees, flowers and manicured lawns. Young people who guide and explain the installations are prepared and kind. A dream.

  • Pleasant visit to this villa clear of rotating hosts furnishings events and exhibitions. It is not very large and it is only an hour and a half to visit it. There is no parking in the area and you can park inside the villa in €2. There is a bar and a restaurant.

  • Incredible Art Collection by Robert Irwin. Front Staff were very kind and spoke great English. Backpacks are frowned upon so keep them in your vehicle. But overall the Villa was beautiful and the staff was gracious.
  • What a magical place. Really enjoyed the garden and the art collection. Delicious food as well.
  • Love this place! amazing collection of lightings art and beautiful park!
  • Place is great, park is huge and perfect also for kids, exposition area is also pretty big and inside an astonishing villa.
  • Collection of modern and contemporary art very important for a value of international works. Elegant and exclusive restaurant in the style of the conte Panza
